Professional growth has always been a high priority of mine. I was planning on becoming a Software Engineer, as I never thought that my scholastic education would be able to give me the tools needed to succeed in the consulting world.
It wasn't until someone walked into one of my intro classes that I found out that the Consulting Group would be able to provide me the foundations needed for the industry.
I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get real-world experience while still in school. I was right! So far I have worked on three different projects learning something new each time.
Throughout the Associates Program, I found and made very close friends, who share the same desire to succeed.
What I love most about the Group is how we get to network with companies and dress up. It reminds me that we are doing work in the real world. My friends always joke with me and call my CGVT meetings "my fancy club meetings"-- as I dress up for them.
Joining the Consulting Group is by far one of the best decisions I made!
